Easy Recipes: Mushroom and Garlic pasta

I just might be sharing more easy recipes in the next few weeks here on my blog until after my son’s season with Matilda ends. (Yep, he’s in the show alternating as Nigel and it’s been crazy for us schedule-wise the past few weeks) Sorry guys, being a stage mother takes a lot of your energy) That’s actually how I ended up cooking Mushroom and Garlic pasta today. We’re due to visit the supermarket but I feel too lazy to go out and do so and I didn’t consider Honest Bee because we’ve got a tight budget this week. Hello […]

Food of my Childhood: Mom’s Kare Kare

I’m an avid fan of only one Kare Kare – my mom’s. Unless it’s crispy Kare Kare, then I may not be very eager to taste your Kare Kare if you serve it to me. Especially not the one using Ox tripe. I’m good with pork hocks or regular meaty cubes which my mom fondly uses. This recipe goes to my Food of my Childhood compilation. I grew up eating my mom’s Kare Kare, which she usually served on Sunday lunches. I’ve always looked forward to Sunday lunches because my mom always prepared great feasts on Sundays because that’s when […]

Parenting: The Bullies

“Somebody bullied Lukas at camp,” my 8-year old son’s best friend told me. According to her, they made fun of my son’s tiny voice and accent when he speaks. And when Lukas tried to tell them to stop, they ridiculed him even more. I was shocked!

Being a mother, my initial reaction was to text my husband and demand that the parents of these […]

Feedback from a newbie at the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2017

I was not able to join the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2017 because I had to prioritize my son’s schedule that day. I’m really at fault here. I badly need to learn how to use planners and all that organizing stuff so I won’t double-book myself, haha! Anyway, I decided to interview one of my friends who attended. Her name is Glaiza Macapallag and she and her husband are contemplating on homeschooling their two older children. Their third is still a baby but she may be homeschooling him, too, eventually. Here are her answers to my questions. The exchange is simple […]

James MacKay Foundation Inc: Breaking the Culture

I received an invitation from James MacKay Foundation Inc. to the groundbreaking ceremony to “Breaking the Culture” at the Philippine National School for the Blind on the 18th of October. I won’t make it to the event as I’m pretty much tied up to my stage motherhood duties, but I thought I’d hear more about the cause from our young friend, Ahmed Davies, who works for the foundation. I’m familiar with Philippine National School for the Blind, except that up until recently, I wasn’t aware that it was the only school of its kind in our country. James MacKay Foundation […]
